Post MD1000 Support?
Ok,
I have been charged with coming up with specs for an ESXi server for our test lab. Currently I have a PowerEdge 2970 & an PowerVault MD1000 picked out. Will the MD1000 work in ESXi 4.0U1? According to VMware's website they only support the MD3000 (which of course costs a lot more). Do I need to go that route?

It was supported according to this with ESX 3.0

Generally I would say it should work (it may have been that they just never bothered to certify it with ESX(i) 3.5 or higher. And you would be limited to 2 connected hosts. Personally I'd look at something else.

PS - You'd have to look at the 3.5 SAN HCL but I beleive there were changes in what was supported for direct connect.

It will actually have a RAID 6 Array on it for VM Storage connected to a lone Dell Server, so it should work fine for what I need.
